TruLog is the only drive log utility app you need to maintain a detailed log of all of your drives while continuously monitoring your engine's health and diagnosing problems if they happen.
TruLog is able to do all this because it directly connects to your engine's electronic control unit (ECU) using a small wireless Bluetooth OBD2 adapter plugged into the diagnostic port under the dash in your vehicle - all gas vehicles have have a standard diagnostic port. Just pair your phone with the OBD2 Bluetooth adapter that you have plugged into your vehicle and bring your phone with you when you drive. A huge selection of inexpensive but reliable and rugged OBD2 Bluetooth adapters that will fit in your vehicle's diagnostic port is available on line - for example, check amazon.com and walmart.com for great deals and selection - search for "OBD2".
TruLog is ideal for professional driver logs, accurate personal tax records, irrefutable business expense documentation, and itemizing all your drives in detail to support maintenance to keep your vehicles in top condition. And it backs up your memory with real data! Use TruLog to log all your drives in all your vehicles.
TruLog watches over your vehicles' health, tracks key drive statistics, calculates key drive performance measures, and analyzes any thrown diagnostic trouble codes - all within the private environment of your smartphone.
TruLog starts recording your drive statistics when you start your engine; it collects and saves your drive data: drive time, distance driven, fuel used, average speed, maximum speed, fuel economy, coolant and much more. If any trouble codes are thrown or the check engine light comes on you are immediately alerted and can drill down to understand what the problem is.
A coolant system failure can cause serious damage to your engine; and coolant system problems do not usually set trouble codes or turn on the check engine light! TruLog monitors engine coolant temperatures throughout each drive and warns you if any potential problems are detected.
Put an OBD2 Bluetooth adapter in all your vehicles or carry an adapter from car to car to document all your drives on one phone - TruLog automatically keeps each vehicle's drives, statistics and data separately organized by its unique vehicle identification number (VIN). TruLog will automatically connect to and work with any paired OBD2 adapter that's plugged into a vehicle - the phone needs to be within about 10 feet of the vehicle/adapter to connect.
TruLog monitors the health of your vehicle and warns you if there is a problem. It detects when the check-engine light comes on, tells you which trouble code/codes caused it and what they mean. You are notified if any diagnostic trouble code gets set even if the check-engine light does not come on.
TruLog also monitors your vehicle's coolant temperature and raises a warning if necessary. A cooling system problem in the engine can often be undetected and silent, but can cause severe engine damage if it goes untreated.
You easily scroll through the logged drives in your "DriveLog" on your phone to see all drive statistics and view your drives with Google maps. Add notes and expenses to any drive for accurate and timely records. Logging drive expenses as they occur greatly improves record keeping for tolls, fuel, food, lodging, and other expenses. TruLog's Premiun Tracking feature with 12-second color coded "breadcrumbs" is available.
You can send your recent drive data by e-mail to yourself or anyone else to analyze it with a spreadsheet or other programs. This is ideal for detailed record keeping for your taxes, expense reports, and vehicle maintenance. TruLog's Premium SendLog feature is available to send all drive log data. TruLog organizes your drive log entries by each vehicle’s identification number (VIN) which is read directly from the diagnostic port so you know and have proof of the validity of your drive log data.
